Teresa is the founder and director of Story Yoga Inc. The idea was born from a desire to provide options for people who felt they did not have any. Her hope is that Story Yoga empowers participants through education. The teacher training is an opportunity for yoga practitioners to connect with community, learn transferable life skills, and support one another on their own unique journey. Story yoga is based on the vision that people can heal, learn, and create while building professional skills.
Teresa is the lead trainer of the teacher training program. Her teaching style is down-to-earth, challenging, yet accessible. Teresa realizes 200 hours would never be enough to scratch the surface of what yoga has to offer, but her hope is to provide the foundation for life-long learning and curiosity.
Robin is a graduate of Story Yoga’s teacher training program and she is a RYS-200 certified yoga teacher and a member of the Yoga Alliance.
Robin believes in approaching yoga with gentleness and compassion. In her classes you are always welcome to engage in YOUR practice. Her goal is to guide you through a practice that allows you to discover how poses feel in your body and how you can adjust the pose to feel the best in your body. We’ll link movement and breath, flowing through poses at a comfortable pace - not too fast or too slow.
Robin has had an on again off again relationship with yoga for over 13 years. In the past few years she’s come back to yoga with a new perspective, embracing yoga as a holistic practice rather than an exercise or movement program. She believes that practicing yoga can open new doors - physically, mentally, and emotionally - for anyone and everyone.
Robin identifies as a person in recovery from both an eating disorder and addiction, and her yoga practice has been an essential part of her recovery and wellbeing.
Emily is a graduate of Story Yoga’s 200-hour YTT. She spent basically her entire adolescence as a benchwarmer in every sport so, naturally, she had quite the aversion to physical exercise. Yoga, however, allowed her to explore her physical capabilities in a playful, yet profound way. Her asana practice naturally led to avid exploration of yogic philosophy, Ayurveda, and multi-dimensional healing that gradually forged a path to recovery from years of addiction. She strives to share the same comfort and relief she found in yoga with her students while allowing them to explore their potential and, ultimately, to learn to trust in their own innate wisdom.
